    Description: We examine the impact of behavioral noise on equilibrium selection in a hawk-dove game with a model that linearly interpolates between the one- and two-population structures in an evolutionary context. Perturbed best response dynamics generates two hypotheses in addition to the bifurcation predicted by standard replicator dynamics. First, when replicator dynamics suggests mixing behavior (close to the one-population model), there will be a bias against hawkish play. Second, polarizing behavior as predicted by replicator dynamics in the vicinity of the two-population model will be less extreme in the presence of behavioral noise. We find both e.ects in our data set.

    Description: Standard one- and two-population models for evolutionary games are the limit cases of a uniparametric family combining intra- and intergroup interactions. Our setup interpolates between both extremes with a coupling parameter k. For the example of the hawk-dove game, we analyze the replicator dynamics of the coupled model. We confirm the existence of a bifurcation in the dynamics of the system and identify three regions for equilibrium selection, one of which does not appear in common one- and two-population models. We also design a continuous-time experiment, exploring the dynamics and the equilibrium selection. The data largely confirm the theory.

    Description: The evolution of the Mexican fisheries policy has occurred in diverse political, economic and social contexts, which have had different connotations, specific to the moment in which they occurred, and always with the aim of achieving an adequate administration and management of this economic activity; for this reason, the present work approaches, at first, the conceptual framework that has the development of a public policy to detonate a sector of the economy; In a second moment, the description of six key historical moments in the construction of the Mexican fishing policy, that allow to understand its present state; and in a third moment, a concentrate of the inputs-outputs of each stage is made, which favor or limit the medium and long-term development of the fishing activity. This shows the situation of a sector with a broadly functional legislative framework, but in terms of implementation has multiple weaknesses and deficiencies so that administrations can maintain the development of the fishing sector in Mexico.

    Description: There is a widespread use of statistical tests to evaluate measurement scales of latent constructs in the business arena. However, the results of these tests can yield misleading conclusions regarding the validity of measurement scales. Therefore, content validity has to be considered in order to avoid misleading outcomes. Through an empirical example, this paper shows how different statistical tests used to analyse discriminant validity yield ambiguous findings. Consequently, discriminant validity should be theoretically established.

    Description: We study the effects of increasing cash grants on the education attainment of low-income middle and high school students in Mexico. Starting in 2009, the Oportunidades conditional cash transfer (CCT) program increased the average grant in middle and high school by 27 percent for females and 30 percent for males in 263 of 630 urban localities in the country. Using administrative data sources and a difference-in-difference identification strategy, we find that students in households with larger grants exhibit lower dropout rates in middle school, and increase high school graduation by up to 33.5 percent. Effect sizes do not vary substantially by gender or baseline academic ability as measured by a standardized test. The expected future income from additional schooling exceeds the cost of the grants by a ratio of more than two-toone. The patterns we observe are consistent with an elastic demand for schooling, suggesting that increasing the school grant component of conditional cash transfers may be an efficient way to boost educational attainment for low-income students.

    Description: This paper assesses the impact of government fiscal policies on income inequality in Asia. It discusses the role and effectiveness of redistributive fiscal policies and quantifies the effects of taxation and government expenditure on income distributions. Panel estimation for 150 countries with data between 1970 and 2009 confirms international empirical findings for Asia. Tax systems tend to be progressive but government expenditures are a more effective tool for redistributing income. Moreover, the results suggest some distinctive differential distributive effect for government expenditure on social protection in Asia. Social protection spending appears to increase income inequality, whereas it reduces it in the rest of the world. Also, adversely affecting the distribution of income in Asia is government expenditure on housing. Some options for improving the effectiveness of fiscal policies in Asia are discussed.

    Description: In this research we develop generalized diffusion indexes for the Mexican state and sectorial economic activity. These indexes summarize the dynamics of the local cycles in a way that they are consistent with the aggregate economic activity. The proposed index includes three dimensions of the local dynamic activity: i) the variation of local cycles (positive or negative), ii) the magnitude of these variations and iii) the weight of local components (states and/or sectors) on the aggregate economic activity. The main contribution of these indexes is that they admit sub-aggregations of regions and/or sectors that are more precise and informative than their counterparts. We show two applications. In the first one, we develop the generalized diffusion index for the Mexican economy using state economic coincident indexes. In the second one, we create a diffusion index of the state and sectorial economic activity using the State Quarterly Indicator of Economic Activity (ITAEE by its Spanish acronym) produced by INEGI.

    Description: Commodity prices are an important driver of fiscal policy and the business cycle in many developing economies. We analyze a dynamic stochastic small-open-economy model of sovereign default, featuring endogenous fiscal policy and stochastic commodity revenues. The model accounts for a positive correlation of commodity revenues with government expenditures and a negative correlation with tax rates. We quantitatively document the extent to which the utilization of different financial hedging instruments by the government contributes to lowering the volatility of different macroeconomic variables and their correlation with commodity revenues. An event analysis illustrates how financial hedging instruments moderate fiscal adjustment in response to significant falls in the price of commodities.

    Description: Financial intermediation and bank spreads are important elements in the analysis of business cycle transmission and monetary policy. We present a simple framework that introduces lending relationships, a relevant feature of financial intermediation that has been so far neglected in the monetary economics literature, into a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model with staggered prices and cost channels. Our main findings are: (i) banking spreads move countercyclically generating amplified output responses, (ii) spread movements are important for monetary policy making even when a standard Taylor rule is employed (iii) modifying the policy rule to include a banking spread adjustment improves stabilization of shocks and increases welfare when compared to rules that only respond to output gap and inflation, and finally (iv) the presence of strong lending relationships in the banking sector can lead to indeterminacy of equilibrium forcing the central bank to react to spread movements.
